Project Description

The logo for the award-winning Doc Holliday Saints & Sinners Festival was inspired by the vintage style of faded old ghost signs from the wild west saloons and gambling houses that once lined Denison’s Skiddy Street. In the late 1800s, when this was a rough train town on the edge of the western frontier, Doc Holliday used to enjoy gambling here. The original logo design featured playing cards since his game of choice was faro. The next year featured a six-shooter which he was also known to play around with. When the next festival rolled around I blended the two and do a new color scheme and background each year to keep it fresh.
